LIAM HEMSWORTH has a quiet intensity that transcends the big screen.
Demonstrating versatility and skill in a range of performances, Hemsworth has
proven to be one of the most sought after actors of his generation.
In 2014 Hemsworth was seen in the crime thriller Cut Bank, starring opposite
Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Dern and John Malkovich and later that fall he
reprised his role as 'Gale Hawthorne' in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay 2. He
recently starred in the revenge western thriller The Duel, starring opposite
Woody Harrelson, and he appeared in Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2,
starring opposite Jeff Goldblum & Bill Pullman earlier this year.
Born in Melbourne, Australia, Hemsworth grew up surfing on Phillip Island. At
the age of 17, having observed his two older brothers Luke and Chris do
television shows in Australia, Hemsworth decided he too wanted to pursue acting
seriously. He enrolled in acting classes, got an agent and started auditioning.
Hemsworth quickly landed his first big acting job on Australia's popular TV
series Home and Away and from there went on to book a role on Australia's most
successful TV show Neighbours.
Knowing Los Angeles was the center of movie making, Hemsworth began sending
audition tapes to the United States, and soon received a call that Marvel wanted
to screen test him for Thor. Though he ended up losing the role of 'Thor' to his
older brother Chris, it was this audition that got Hemsworth to Los Angeles.
He beat out hundreds of actors for the part of 'Will Blakelee' in the film
adaptation of Nicholas Spark's The Last Song, co-starring Greg Kinnear and Miley
Cyrus. Hemsworth then went onto star in two of 2012's biggest box office hits -
The Hunger Games, directed by Gary Ross, and Expendables 2, directed by Simon
West. He's since starred opposite Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman in the high
stakes thriller Paranoia, directed by Robert Luketic and Empire State, directed
by Dito Montiel and co-starring Dwayne Johnson and Emma Roberts. He also
reprised his role as 'Gale Hawthorne' in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The
Hunger Games: Mockingjay 1, directed by Francis Lawrence.
